Monday 05/14/12 Report and Prediction

Report:  Small-scale hard-angled remnant S windswell with S-SSW winds.  Not all that impressive but you might be able to find a little peak for a big board hiding on the leeward side of a jetty somewhere.

Prediction:  Low pressure arriving later today/tonight should bring some precipitation and increasing S-SSE winds, which in turn should drive up a new hard-angled S-SSE windswell Tuesday into Wednesday.  Right now it looks like the low will start to push off on Wednesday, bringing winds SW and eventually WSW in the late afternoon/evening.  I will update again tomorrow if/when the timing of the cleanup becomes clear; until then, as always, I suggest you monitor local sources of weather for the most up to date wind reports and predictions.

Extended Forecast:  Some mid-period SE-ESE swell might spin off the back of the low and hold into Thursday, with N-NNW winds currently predicted.  Again, I will address this in my next update as the models resolve some of the instability inherent and typical in forecasts in excess of 48hrs.
